Freshwater Cultured Pearls

These pearls are gathered from freshwater lake and river mollusks. Most Freshwater pearls come from China and they can be mostly round to off-round, or rice-shaped to baroque. They look similar to Akoya pearls, but are the perfect gift when on a budget. They might be slightly less symmetrical, smaller, or not as easily matched, but these minor differences provide a major value for the price.

Cultivation

Pearls are produced naturally in the body of salt and freshwater mollusks, such as oysters and mussels. When these animals sense an irritant, such as a grain of sand, they produce a soft coating of calcium carbonate substance around it. The result is a pearl. Because perfectly round, naturally produced pearls are so rare, a process known as cultivation was developed by Kokichi Mikimoto in the early 1900s. A small bead of polished shell, the nucleus, is used as an irritant and delicately inserted into the mantle of a mollusk. It takes approximately 20-24 months of intensive husbandry to cultivate a saltwater pearl and somewhat less time to cultivate freshwater pearls. The harvest usually takes place during the months of June and September.

Color

Mollusks produce pearls in a variety of colors, accommodating most personal preferences and budgets. The general color of a pearl is also known as the body color. Pearls typically range from white, cream, and yellow to pink, silver, or black. An overtone of secondary color is sometimes seen. For instance, a pearl may appear to be white, but upon closer inspection a rosy hue is detected. The body color would then be termed white-rosé. Color variation does not affect the quality of the pearl, though it should be noted that color matching is important when choosing pearls for some necklaces, earrings, or bracelets. In fashion jewelry, pearls can sometimes be dyed to achieve the desired color, which should be mentioned in the product description or specifications.

Lustre

The appealing, deep shine of a pearl is often what defines its beauty. This shine is produced by multiple layers of semi-opaque calcium carbonate crystals, called nacre. The nacre reflects light on the surface of the pearl, producing brilliance and sheen. Lustre is an integral feature in determining the quality of a pearl. Large pearls have a thicker nacre and, therefore, a higher lustre. When comparing a small Freshwater pearl to a large South Sea pearl, the difference is clearly visible to the untrained eye and should be considered when purchasing pearls.

Shape

While pearls come in many different shapes, the rarest and highest-quality are round. Akoya, Tahitian, and South Sea oysters tend to produce the roundest pearls, while those of Freshwater mollusks can be oval to slightly off-round. When considering a pearl purchase, whether it be a necklace, bracelet, or earrings, look for consistency in the shapes of the pearls. Many of the less symmetrical shapes are used in stylish jewelry which can be quite beautiful: the drop pearl's shape lends well to earrings, and the baroque pearl features irregular shapes that work well as necklace accents. In addition, a half sphere pearl called a "mabe" is often used in earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.

Size

An oyster's particular type and size has a direct effect on how large the pearl it produces will be, and pearls do come in a wide range of sizes. Round pearls are measured according to their diameter, while baroque pearls are measured by their length and width. A pearl's size does not necessarily affect its quality, but it does affect its price. Large, round pearls are rare and their lustre is usually high--this beautiful combination of traits is often reflected in the cost of such pearls.

Average pearl sizes (in diameter):

Akoya: 6-8mm

Freshwater: 5-6.5mm

South Sea: 11-13mm

Tahitian: 11-12mm

Keshi: 4-10mm

Surface Markings

Often when an oyster creates a pearl, the nacre does not develop smoothly. The surface of a pearl is judged by how many marks are visible in the nacre. These imperfections can be small and unnoticeable or quite large and distinct. Like diamonds, pearls are rarely flawless. However, high lustre or the way pearls are strung and set can help conceal surface markings.

Care

Proper care of pearls is not difficult if you remember that they are organic and produced by a living thing. Pearls are soft and delicate, but when cared for with common sense, they will maintain their lustre for centuries. The pearls should not come in contact with cosmetics, hairspray, perfume, chlorinated water, or other harsh chemicals. To keep them clean, let them be the last item put on when dressing, and the first item taken off at the end of an evening. The best way to maintain their lustre is to wear the pearls often, and wipe them down with a soft cloth afterward--pearls absorb the oils from skin, which helps keep them moist. Pearls should be stored in a cloth pouch or jewelry bag, separated from other jewelry to prevent nicks or chipping. Periodically, pearl strands should be restrung since the silk thread used to tie the pearls together breaks down over time.

    I purchased this along with matching necklace and earrings and am quite pleased overall at the quality. The pearls aren't perfect but they look very nice. You would be hard pressed to see any of the minor flaws unless you were examining it close up. The shape of the pearls are like large tic tacs (or potato like the description). They all were pretty consistent in shape and size. The one concern that I had was the clasp. I purchased a matching necklace that had an identical clasp and it works perfectly. It holds very tight. This bracelet on the other hand seems to have a much looser clasp. It would tend to pop open if pulled slightly. Now the way the clasp works, it won't fall off as the hook still holds it in place. It's just a minor concern. Overall my wife was very very pleased at the gift and she has had many compliments on it already. That's probably the most important thing right? If the wife is happy, everyone is happy :D

    I purchased four of these bracelets in four different colors as gifts for four sisters. I ordered them at different times and they came in different boxes, which is not going to work if I want each sister to have the same gift save for color. The first bracelet came in a tiny box, which was too small and lined with plastic stuff (not quite bubble wrap, but sort of like it). There was, however, a nice touch: a little black velvet pouch. The second bracelet came in an appropriate box, which looks really great. The third and fourth bracelets (which I ordered at the same time) came in nice-looking boxes, but they were too large, having been designed I presume to hold necklaces. These boxes have four prongs in them that spaced too far apart to hold a bracelet in place. I was able, by bending the prongs the opposite direction than they're meant to go, place them such that they will hold the bracelets, but it still doesn't look right and the prongs may now be broken.

    The bracelets themselves are pretty, although the clasp is a bit cheap-looking. The strand is knotted between each pearl, which is good and makes the bracelet look a little nicer. There was a little tag that says Made in China on the first bracelet, so you'll want to take that off if you plan to give this as a present (you'll also want to peel off the stickers on the bottoms of the boxes).

    If this is for you, and not a gift, I think you'll like it a lot, and who cares about the packaging? For something for yourself, the price is really right! For a gift, the price is right, but . . . you may not get the gorgeous packaging that is shown in the pictures.

    I ordered this bracelet for my sister for her 50th birthday - her birthstone is pearl. This was a very high quality bracelet, especially for the price.

    I saw the bad reviews but for the price I couldn't pass this up. I wish I had.

    The metal that the clasp is made of broke apart as soon as I opened the package and attempted to open the clasp. This is garbage. The metal is soft and bendable and breaks apart with the slightest touch.

    Amazon should really stop selling this, the clasp is pretty but what good is a clasp if it's too delicate to open without breaking?

    This was a lovely bracelet the one time I could get it on my arm. When I went to take it off, I couldn't do it alone so I asked my girlfriend and even my boyfriend to help me take it off. The clasp broke :(

    Really pretty, dainty pink pearl bracelet. Clasp is nice. Can wear it with almost anything. Loose enough to be comfortable without catching on anything. I really love this bracelet.
